Do you remember those scratch boards from elementary art class? You know, where there was color beneath a surface of black and when you scratched at the black you magically had a wild and crazy drawing? I LOVED those things. Like crazy I loved those things.
And with my recent visit of my nephews I was thinking about and putting together some craft projects for these very crafty kids and I kept coming back to that idea. Low on time and lacking the materials the project was placed on the back burner. But I kept thinking about those silly little boards.
And when I couldn’t get them out of my mind I finally decided to make something inspired by the boards. So I took a pair of white sneakers and made myself a pair of vacation kicks that I’m going to take on my lake vacation later this month. Because they’re mostly black, these babies aren’t going to stain and they’ll look fabulous and unique all the while!
So head on over to iLoveToCreate to see how to make your own scratch board inspired kicks (including a little DIY on how to draw the flowers I did) – Neon Doodled Flower Kicks
